Rock n' Roll is the greatest ever export from the USA!!!
Yes or no? :-)
I love Rock music, but I feel that Jazz and Blues music gets us more respect. Those two genre's alone have influenced so many other genres (especially Rock music). Plus many people consider jazz America's classical music.
According to an article that I read in this week's (4/10) "Time" magazine, one of America's greatest/latest exports is semen!!!!!
Yes, Rock n Roll is America's Greatest Export because, well, because IT ROCK'S!!
Great question.. Fun
I would say the different forms of Americana (blues, jazz, folk, etc...)roots music that ended up influencing rock music would be America's greatest exports. But then again I'm from Canada so my perspective could be different.
The influence of the USA on popular music has been immense. I love Blues music too, right back to Robert Johnson and also the great songs of Americana. People like Woody Guthrie, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Joni Mitchell
I still think Rock n' Roll is King because of the effect it had on youth in America then spread like wildfire all across the world. Nothing can beat that.
Ever since the 90's America has owned rock and roll....however to be technical I'd say their greatest export is food aid for Africa:D

Every generation rock n roll has changed and transformed into something else and now you don't hear much about rock music which I think is bullshit. I hear some people say rock n roll is dead, But they are wrong rock n...

If you are even the slightest bit of a rock n roll fan you've got to drop some respect for the great Mr. Berry! If there hadn't been Chuck Berry, there wouldn't have been a Beatles, or a Rolling Stones....and without...
